About me

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us” ~ David Richo. Many of us struggle with the wounds of our past, the pain that we might be struggling with in our present, or the uncertainty of our future. Change can be scary; and sometimes it can feel easier to stay in the known, even when that brings fear, pain, or resentment. You being here recognizes that there is a part of you that is interested in changing.

I come to you as a woman of color, a first-generation American, a mother, and a therapist – these roles influence my approach. I strive to provide a space that encourages safety and curiosity into your internal experiences, which can lead to insight into patterns of behavior that are no longer serving you. I view my role as therapist as someone to help you gain access to your inner wisdom – a part of you that may be covered up in shame or fear, a part of you that has the potential to become a resource and guide to you in times of joy as well as pain, and a part of you that you may not believe exists.

I believe in a holistic approach to healing – when trying to make positive change in our life it is important to acknowledge the interconnection of our body, mind, emotions, and sense of self. Maneuvering through the world can be a challenge; you don’t have to do it alone. I look forward to joining you on your journey of healing and transformation.
